My kids play Sandbox games online, Roblox and Minecraft, the former they are both pretty adept in Lua scripting so use their imaginations to build games and environments. They bounce off each other being only a year apart in age..
As for me, like you, I enjoy FPS games, and used to love also old school D&D sessions.
My partners daughter is into AoS part of the War Hammer family, she has intricate models that she builds and paints then plays off against other players with them with a rule book that looks more like an encyclopedia
Not for me really, taken some of the imagination away and just turned it into a money tree getting kids to buy more and more figures and packs, and believe me they aint cheap...
